About the Gold Crown Foundation
Gold Crown Enrichment was formed in 2003 when the Gold Crown Field House opened in Lakewood, Colo. Gold Crown’s Clubhouse is a free-of-charge, award-winning program that leverages cutting-edge technologies to engage under-served youth in meaningful learning experiences. GCE programs have expanded to two locations, the Best Buy Teen Tech Center at the Gold Crown Field House and the Gold Crown Clubhouse at Edgewater. GCE offers year-round programs and includes Catalyst initiatives during the school day with various schools, after-school enrichment Clubhouse programming, Summer STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math) Camps, and C2C Pathways to Success.
Clubhouse to College/Career (C2C) Pathways is a 12-month long career planning and workforce readiness program, beginning in September each year, that concludes with the opportunity for youth to be placed within paid summer STEAM-related internships. It is a uniquely designed program offered free of charge to youth 16-21 years of age at the Gold Crown Clubhouse. This program stimulates youth interest in STEAM fields and careers, supports youth in preparing for success in careers of their choosing, and provides youth with real-world connections, experiences and work opportunities.
In 2019, Gold Crown Foundation launched the Health Huddle to address mental health, healthy habits and sports performance topics for youth. This program reaches beyond the playing field to address the “whole child” in mind, body and overall health. In collaboration with Children’s Hospital Colorado and the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus, the Health Huddle provides online resources on health topics, virtual webinars with guest speakers who are experts in their field, and on-site activation at Gold Crown events.
